Police probe gambling kingpin party with officers

Malaysian police are looking into a video recording that shows seven policemen from the Muar district in Johor apparently fraternizing with a known gambling den boss at a karaoke lounge.

One was thought to be a police inspector, local media reports. The video, which features the inspector, corporal, four lance corporals and a detective corporal, went viral on social media on Sunday (Oct 8) evening.

The lance corporal and detective corporal are attached to the Secret Society, Gaming and Vice Division (D7) while the corporal and three lance corporals are from a task force, the reports said.

Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said he was waiting for a full report from Johor police chief Mohd Khalil Kader on the video recording.
